Petition calling on the UK government to create a Minister for Hospitality reaches over 100,000 signatures
So the year draws to an end and good news remains scarce. The situation facing many and an increasing number of businesses in tourism remains precarious. A petition calling on the UK government to create a Minister for Hospitality has reached over 100,000 signatures, meaning it will be debated in Parliament on 11 January 2021. Good news or not? Possibly.
In the meantime, you will have all heard the Prime Minister's and First Minister's announcements (18/12/20) or at least the results of the impact of them including the need to exercise caution over the festive period and what is effectively a new lockdown in Wales. The Chancellor has announced an extension of the furlough scheme (until end of April 2021) and confirmed that the Budget will take place on 3 March.
